This year, in cooperation with the University of Mannheim we were able to measure the impact of our initiative on participants and organisations.
Before the Meet and Code events only 30% rated their coding knowledge as rather high to high. After the event, this was increased to nearly 60% (doubled).
Taking part in the Meet and Code events had a positive impact on participants’ self-efficacy, confidence, learning orientation, and interest in IT.
More than 82% of participants agree that the events fully met their expectations. 84% agree that the events were a lot of fun.
Participants perceptions after the event are slightly more positive than their expectations before the event (expectations were exceeded).
The organizations’ perceptions after the event were even more positive than their expectations before the event (expectations were exceeded). Exception: connecting with other organizations.
The participation in Meet and Code improved their attitudes and openness towards new technologies.
More than 80% of partner organizations say that through participating in the event they became more aware of the potential of new technologies. More than 84% say that they received new impulses.
